Or ask 5 good questions. Or post the link so everyone will have to type it out on their browsers. e.g. www(dot)linuxquestions(dot)org

ppuru is right, we created it this way so it prevents those who only sign up to spam our site, advertise, etc. It makes 100% total sense if you run a site like this.

And please don't make shit posts, make legit posts please, if your posts are crap just to get 5 urls, or you make a thread and keep replying in it, it will be removed.

Regards.

Edited: Okay, too late. It seems you just spammed our site, totally disregarding our rules. I explained it here but you do it anyways, make this your first and final warning or you can lose privileges to our site.

www(dot)linuxquestions(dot)org would have worked well with your links.

I have just read your thread - the one you annoyed people for so you could post links. What was wrong with copying and pasting the relevant parts of your XFree86 config file and the relevant parts from your error log and describing the screen as you saw it?
